Professional Audio-to-Video Synchronization

There are times when video and audio become out of sync during video production or live video streaming. Most users would feel annoyed when such an issue arises. Videos are usually processed at 25 or 50 frames per second and the audio is delivered in milliseconds.

Due to different processing times and network latencies, you will thus receive out of sync video and audio. The HS-4000’s professional built-in audio delayer is designed to ensure precise audio-to-video synchronization by delaying and calibrating the audio received.

Ultimately, the sound reproduced by stereo speakers should match the video played on the big screen, providing audience with a pleasant viewing experience.

You may sometimes need to switch between different chromakey, lumakey and linear key settings because different video shooting environments have different camera angles and amount of light so the keyer settings may vary.

You can save the camera’s PTZ settings along with these keyer parameters in the user memory presets which can be accessed with one tap. Once loaded, the program view will be switched instantaneously to another camera image along with the keyer settings and the background image, mimicking video switching with multiple keyers.

Support SRT streaming protocol, no need to worry about unreliable network environment

Many broadcasters have experienced pixelated video during live streaming, often due to unstable network environments caused by bandwidth volatility.

Streaming RTMP over unreliable, low-bandwidth networks can cause issues. With dvCloud, you can now replace the RTMP protocol with SRT, which will fix most streaming issues you may have. SRT is better than RTMP because it handles problematic networks more efficiently.

It requires less bandwidth, and it solves data errors faster. As a result, your viewers will experience a better stream, with less buffering and pixelization.


Seamlessly compatible with dvCloud

Get the most out of your streaming hardware using dvCloud. The built-in streaming encoder is seamlessly compatible with Datavideo’s dvCloud service.

This subscription service give you the possibility of sending your stream to multiple destinations at the same time without having to have multiple hardware encoders.

You can also record your production on the dvCloud platform in h.264 format. After recording you can directly use this recording to upload it to your favourite content platform.

Direct SRT streaming to dvCloud prevents hickups and lag in your stream, especially when using slow or unreliable internet connections or when streaming large distances (for instance to the other side of the globe). Even if your destination does not support SRT you can still stream SRT to dvCloud and go to the destination in RTMP.

Stream to 25 Platforms Simultaneously (dvCloud Professional)

dvCloud Professional (please refer to for more info) can stream to 25 platforms simultaneously. It can stream to either different platforms or different channels of the same platform. Thus, even if your local network bandwidth is limited, you can still stream to multiple platforms at the same time with dvCloud.

Real Time Statistics

dvCloud provides powerful real-time statistics for all video sources and destinations so you can be sure every frame reaches its destination:

Monitor your video sources and be sure every frame makes it to the cloud
Leave nothing to chance, check your networks performance and adjust your streaming settings before you go live
Monitor your streaming destinations in real time with our easy-to-use traffic light system
